Whamadoodles Online

Several years ago, the MMO landscape was a scorched, bloody, cratered wasteland. Conceptual MMO games were popping up like mushrooms and crashing like houses of cards in an earthquake. Dawn proved to be nothing but vaporware. WW2O closed its doors after only a month or two. Anarchy Online had one of the worst launches on record. All in all it was a bad time for many in the MMO business. Such is the stage for a brilliant bit of comedy known as The Game Producers. A parody of "The Producers," it was a sardonic roast posted origionally on the now defunct "Slow News Day" news site (formerly belonging to Lum the Mad, but he pulled the plug from it as soon as their reviewers started getting critical of his new corporate masters, Mythic Entertainment). It found a temporary home again on, but it's gone from there now as well.

For a while, it looked like the "Springtime for Hitler" of online gaming that is Whamadoodles Online might slip away, forgotten.

Well, I am happy to say that with the kind permission and gracious assistance of the author, I have secured the files and have set up hosting once again for The Game Producers. Hope you enjoy it!
